Looking for a new Eat-All-You-Can Smokeless Grill restaurant to try out? The put Sambo Kojin Yakinuku Smokeless Grill next on your list of fun smokeless grill spots in the metro! If you love YakiMix, I believe you'll have a great time at Sambo Kojin too :-) In case you didn't know, Sambo Kokin is also from the Dad's-Saisaki-Kamayan-Somethin' Fishy family... so "satisfaction guaranteed" if I may say :-)

We already had several dinners at their Eastwood Branch (but wasn't able to take photos, since we were always late, thus... overly hungry whenever we finally get seated)... so we thought of checking out their EDSA branch, right above Dad's.

Anyway, I cannot help but make a few comparisons to YakiMix since they basically offer the same type of food and dining experience. My husband says, he prefers Sambo Kojin over YakiMix... so let me give you a rundown on what we liked better.

Sambo Kojin
... has a selection of sauces and condiments each of their tables
... offers scrumptious Kamameshi Rice in a pretty wooden serving container
... has better tasting Sukiyaki (in our opinion)
... has better tasting Tempura
... has a bit more cooked dishes which are quite yummy too... love the beef curry, tofu steak and spicy wings!
... have attendants and waiters who are more helpful and friendly... they'd be glad to give you a few tips on seasoning your grill items

If they only had the same Ice Cream and Popsicle selection as YakiMix, everything would be perfect. Hahaha :-)

Wasn't able to take a photo of their yummy Kamameshi Rice, so here's a photo I borrowed from their Facebook page... Just had to post it 'coz it's one of the highlights for me there... hehe :-)


Tip:  Sambo Kojin also gets packed during the peak hours of lunch and dinner... especially on weekends, holidays, and special occasions... so try to come early if you don't like waiting :-)

Must-try: Kamameshi Rice, Beef Curry, Sukiyaki, and Tofu Steak... and have a short lesson from one of their attendants on how to season your grill items :-)

Will I Go Back?:
> Definitely! 

Do I Recommend This Place?:
> Yes! We've also tried other Smokeless Grill places like YakiMix and BonoYaki... they're all good, but I would have to say that this is our fave place in terms of Smokeless Grill Restaurants.

  1. I just hope they will be able to maintain the quality of their food unlike their Dads Kamayan and Saisaki Restos...sayang eh! These rstos are very close to my heart bec this comapny were able to offer high end type of cuisine at affordable prices but then...guess inflation caught up and their places do need a whole make over! Sayang talaga

  2. To Anonymous: Yeah, I do hope they maintain the quality... one thing that I don't like about smokeless grill places nowadays is the fact that there's always a queue if you don't get there early... i know it's because of all the hype and all, i'm wondering how this could be resolved...oh well.. just be there early i suppose.. hahaha :-)
